Orchestra USA/John LewisDebut ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... About May 25, 2017
The first recordings ever from Orchestra USA – the landmark third stream jazz group co-led by John Lewis and Gunther Schuller! The group sprang out of Schuller and Lewis' preoccupations with bringing jazz to a more serious environment – merging traits of 20th century classical with jazz-based improvisation – in a format that included standout solo players, as well as larger backings from strings and woodwinds. And while some of that group's recordings were a bit dull, this one's totally great – not nearly as stiff and academic as you'd think – with some really strong solo work on saxes, and a soulful approach that gets past any formalism that could mar the proceedings. Players include Eric Dolphy, Phil Woods, Leo Wright, Nick Travis, and Jim Hall – and titles include "Three Little Feelings (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Milesign", "Milano", "Natural Affection", and "Donnie's Theme".

Stuart BakerBlack Fire New Spirits – Images Of A Revolution – Radical Jazz In The USA 1960 to 1975 (hardcover) ... Book
Soul Jazz (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 49.95
A stunning book of photographs to stand alongside the excellent album art books done by the Soul Jazz label – a treasure trove of hardly-seen images of some of the best underground musicians of the 60s and 70s – and a great antidote to the sorts of jazz books that are only just filled with pictures of Duke, Louis, and Miles! In true Soul Jazz fashion, the volume shines the spotlight on key avant and spiritual jazz figures – like Roland Kirk, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Elvin Jones, Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Alice Coltrane, Lloyd McNeil, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Max Roach, Larry Young, and many others – each of whom get at least one very vivid photo (some black and white, some color), and a short bit of text that introduces their music and placement in jazz. To be fair, there's also some shots of Miles, too – but shown in a very different context in this great book! 189 pages, oversize, with a great hardcover package. Book

✨✧ MC5Back In The USA ... LP
Atlantic, Early 70s. Good+ ... $19.99
The MC5 move to Atlantic Records after their first album – and find a whole new sort of focus that's pretty great! Their classic debut was a raw live album – designed to capture their intensity on the Detroit scene of the late 60s – but this set has the group stretching out, and really going for something else – working in the studio for the first time, with surprisingly strong production from a young Jon Landau – and a sense of focus in the songs that shows a great degree of maturity, while still keeping all their pre-punk edges! Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith are plenty darn fierce on guitar – and the titles alone give a good idea of the energy of the record – and include "Tutti Frutti", "Teenage Lust", "High School", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower", and "Back In The USA".

Columbia, 1984. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The album where Bruce Springsteen really settles in as The Boss – gritty, chest-pumping anthems all the way here on this one! Born In The USA is so exuberant and full of life, even when Bruce is angry –as he is on the title track – his charisma is so strong that you'd be forgiven for thinking he's cheerleading, when he's really criticizing. Strong stuff, even if you might want to skip over couple of overplayed numbers – with "Cover Me", "Darlington County", "I'm On Fire", "I'm Going Down", "My Hometown", "Glory Days", "Born In The USA", "No Surrender", "Bobby Jean", "Dancing In The Dark", and "Working On The Highway".

VariousChartbusters USA – Special Country Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic entry in this great series from Ace Records – a set that looks at some of the bigger country music hits of the late 60s, but in a way that moves way past the obvious and iconic! Sure, there's some well-known tracks here, but there's also a number that broke big at the time, but fell off the radar over the years – especially some of the unusual hits by big stars, or standout numbers by artists who maybe never hit the bigtime again. The variety of styles and themes is great – and really reflects some of the politics and anxieties of the time – and overall, given the helpful notes, the whole thing is similar to the excellent Dim Lights, Thick Smoke, & Hillbilly Music series on Bear Family. Titles include "The First Thing Every Morning" by Jimmy Dean, "Flowers On The Wall" by The Statler Brothers, "Girl On The Billboard" by Del Reeves, "Singing My Song" by Tammy Wynette, "Mr Walker It's All Over" by Billie Jo Spears, "I Wanna Live" by Glen Campbell, "Skip A Rope" by Henson Cargill, "What's Made Milwaukee Famous" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Understand Your Man" by Johnny Cash, "Miller's Cave" by Bobby Bare, "Almost Persuaded" by David Houston, "Begging To You" by Marty Robbins, "Carroll County Accident" by Porter Wagoner, "Chug A Lug" by Roger Miller, "Okie From Muskogee" by Merle Haggard, and "Six White Horses" by Tommy Cash.

VariousDJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist USA – R&B Rockers, Rockabilly, Northern Soul, & Sleazy Shakers ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson.

EMI/Liberty (Japan), 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Sonny Criss' classic albums for Imperial – a brilliant batch of LA bop from the 50s, with an impeccable sound throughout! Criss had a tone like nobody else on the alto – and here, he's at the height of his early powers – neither blowing too hard, nor going for boppish tricks – and instead settling into an amazing groove with a sense of power, confidence, and extreme "rightness" as to his choice of notes! The album's right on the money throughout – exactly the kind of set that lives up to our lifetime devotion to Sonny's music – and the whole thing's great, with tracks that include "West Coast Blues", "Criss Cross", "Ham's Blues", and "Blue Friday".

✨✧ John Benson BrooksFolk Jazz USA (plus Alabama Concerto) ... CD
Vik/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 obscure albums John Benson Brooks – an overlooked 50s jazz composer who often had a penchant for higher concept recordings! The first half of the CD features Folk Jazz USA – one of Brooks' most stripped down records – done with a core group of Zoot Sims on alto, Al Cohn on baritone, Nick Travis on trumpet, Barry Gailbraith on guitar, Osie Johnson on drums, and Buddy Jones on bass. The style is kind of a chamber jazz reworking of tunes from folk sources – done in a way that hangs modernist clothes on older melodies – really dressing them up with the jazz charms of mid 50s RCA! Travis is especially strong on the set – with boldly-stated lines that preserve the melodies, while other players really take off with their solos on the saxes. Titles include "Darling Corey", "Turtle Dove", "Black Is The Color", "Randall My Son", and "Venezuela". Next up is Alabama Concerto – a record based around the solo talents of Art Farmer on trumpet and Cannonbal Adderley on alto sax! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy".

We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops.

Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1999. New Copy ... $11.99
A lesser-known project from the Chicago scene of the late 90s – music by painter Brian Calvin and poet Devin Johnson – working here in a stripped-down style that's extremely captivating! The pair were previously part of the group USA, on Drag City – and work here on most tracks with labelmate Jim O'Rourke, who produced most of the tracks (Calvin contributed the cover painting for Jim's Crystal Ball album.) But the main energy here comes from Brian and Devin – who alternate vocals and guitars, on these slow-building tunes that are dripping with blue tones that are a perfect accompaniment for their raspy vocals and the wonderful wordplay in their tunes. Titles include "Noon", "March & April", "All We Know So Far", "Three Walls", and "Goodbye". CD

Stelvio CiprianiRhythmical Movement (with bonus download) ... LP
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA".

Chico HamiltonWith Strings Attached ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no longer their cellist, but still a key force here) – and the approach is a great expansion on the earlier styles that Chico forged for Pacific Jazz. The strings here are never sleepy, and instead have a dark and modern feel overall – similar to Ralph Burns' best work of the time, but a bit more restrained – and Eric Dolphy's reed work really keeps things interesting, with sharp-edged notes give most of the tracks a fair bit of depth. Titles include "Modes", "Strange", "Don's Delight", "Andante", "Fair Weather", "Something To Live For", and "Pottsville USA". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album from the great Pony Poindexter – one of his few dates as a leader, and a real lost killer from early 60s Prestige! Pony's working here on alto and soprano sax – the latter of which sounds especially nice – all sharp-edged and angular, and cast out over some very groovy rhythms from Gildo Mahones on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Jimmie Smith on drums! The "Big Ones" in the title are some of the grooviest pop tunes of the 60s – like "Fly Me To The Moon", "Midnight In Moscow", "Moon River", and "Twistin USA" – and they're given a jaunty soul-jazz approach by Pony, who plays some of the best soprano and alto sax he's ever recorded!

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

Sylvie VartanSylvie Vartan En Anglais – Et En Americain ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Sylvie Vartan was one of the grooviest singers in France during the 60s – part of that great wave of female talent that also included Francoise Hardy and France Gall – and although her French recordings are very well-remembered and reissued, she also cut a number of more obscure English language tracks at the time! This collection is the first to focus on those gems – work recorded in New York, Nashville, and London – all different spots directed by RCA, where Sylvie picked up new grooves, different production, and some styles that really expanded her sound! Almost all the numbers here still have that swinging 60s French pop approach – mod at times, slinky at others – but the shift to English lyrics makes for a mighty nice change – and opens the singers charms to an even bigger audience than ever. CD features 25 tracks, detailed notes, and even includes a few unissued titles from the time – with tunes that include "Love Has Laid His Hands On Me", "Whirlpool", "Gonna Cry", "Run For The Sun", "USA", "I Heard Somebody Say", "Another Heart", "He Understands Me", "It's Not A Game", and "I Wish You Well".

Various808 – The Compilation ... CD
Essential, 1980s/Early 90s/2016. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A great look at the Roland 808 – that important drum machine that not only formed the basis for some key hip hop classics, but also set the stage for countless cuts to come! The set begins in the early 80s New York scene – and features up three different mixes of two different important tracks – "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force and "Jam On It" by Newcleus – both of which take on nice variation in the different mixes. The set then moves onto other territory tracing the 808 both in the same period, and over the years – with cuts that include "Rock The Planet" by Megatrons, "Set It Off" by Beat Street, "Don't Stop The Rock" by Freestyle, "Dirty Talk (USA Connection mix)" by Klein & MBO, "Bass Rock Express" by Amos Larkins II, "Clear" by Beat Street, "Cars That Go Boom" by L'Trimm, and "Why Can't We Live Together" by George McCrae.

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Dancefloor stormers from one of the most fruitful periods in American music – a set of tracks that were all based around a specific style or dancing mode, but which have gone onto become some of the best-remembered grooves of the time! The collection brings together Northern Soul, group harmony tracks, blues and rockers, and even a few Latin-styled tracks as well – most of which lent their name to a dance fad that they either inspired, or were recorded to help push forward – although the music here is more than great enough to keep on going, long after the dancefloor has died down! And given the strength of these cuts, the whole thing's way more than just a collection of faddish tracks – because these tunes have lasted a lot longer than their steps on the floor. Titles on this second volume include "Let's Stomp" by Bobby Comstock, "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, "Shake A Tail Feather" by The Five Du-Tones, "Shimmy Shimmy" by Bobby Freeman, "The Jerk" by The Larks, "Loop De Loop" by Johnny Thunder, "The Twist" by Hank Ballard, "The Crusher" by The Novas, "Bacon Fat" by Andre Williams, "Baby Workout" by Jackie Wilson, "Skate Now" by Lou Courtney, "Barefootin" by Robert Parker, "Pop Eye" by Huey Smith, "The Wobble" by Curtis Lee, "Twistin USA" by Danny & The Juniors, "The Bird's The Word" by The Rivingtons, "The Bounce" by The Olympics, "The Madison (part 1)" by Ray Bryant, "Dance With The Guitar Man" by Duane Eddy, and "The Roach" by Gene & Wendell.

✨✧ Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

✨✧ Rafael CameronCameron's In Love ... LP
Salsoul, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rafael Cameron's in love, but he never lets his groove go down at all – thanks to some super-sharp production and arrangements from the legendary Randy Muller! Muller had great success with BT Express and Brass Construction – and he uses that style of upbeat, uptempo funk strongly here underneath Cameron's vocals – at a level that's a mix of 80s groove and electro, with lots of sweet keyboard lines that crackle perfectly alongside Rafael's vocals. There's just a few mellower moments – which remind us that Cameron can be a deeper soul singer when he wants – and titles include "Number One", "Funtown USA", "Daisy", "In Love", "Let's Get Married", and "All That's Good To Me".

Sire, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

Tim BlakeBlake's New Jerusalem (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Egg/Esoteric (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Tim Blake looks like he's sitting at the helm of a spaceship on the cover – and in a way, that's what his music was at the time – a way of taking off to the skies on waves of electronics, in the kinds of sounds that Blake first created in his Crystal Machine project, but which have an even sharper focus here! The album's got more vocals than Tim's previous effort, and in a way that's what really sets it apart from the rest – as Blake's got this warmly positive approach that would be at home in progressive folk, but which here comes across with a very unique style – given the mostly electronic setting of the album! All the banks of knobs, slides, and keys pictured on the cover are used to strongly skillful effect – on titles that include "Generator", "Passage Sur La Cite", "New Jerusalem", "Song For A New Age", and "Lighthouse". CD features three bonus tracks – "The Woodland Voice", "From Outer Space", and "Jupiter To Jerusalem". CD

Pete Brown & PibloktoThousands On A Raft ... CD
Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99
Long hair, jazzy riffing, and all the best hope that the early years of prog had to offer – all coming together on a record that's years ahead of its time! It's really hard to put a label on Pete Brown's sounds with Piblokto – music that's maybe more poetic than most of its contemporaries, but also has more of a bite, too – definitely that wit of Brown's that never dimmed at all, and instrumentation that's super-sharp, and super-smart – but never too full of itself to be overly indulgent. The songs are longer than on the previous Piblokto record, but in ways that only flesh out the ideas even more fully – on titles that include "Highland Song", "Aeroplane Head Woman", "Got A Letter From A Computer", "Thousands On A Raft", and "Station Song Platform Two".

CandidoThousand Finger Man ... LP
Solid State, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stone lost Latin funk! This is Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train".

Crusaders2nd Crusade ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
An early 70s classic from The Crusaders – and a record that has the group perfectly poised between the rougher soul jazz of their roots and some of the tighter styles they brought into play during the 70s! The sound here is heavily electric – thanks to great keyboards from Joe Sample and bass from Wilton Felder – but the style isn't nearly as slick as on later albums recorded under the Crusaders name, thanks to the hipper, looser feel the group were allowed while working for the Chisa label! As on the first album recorded after the group shifted their name from the Jazz Crusaders, the set features added guitar work by Larry Carlton, David T Walker, and Arthur Adams – all of whom really help to emphasize the funkier side of the tracks while Wayne Henderson's trombone and Wilton Felder's tenor remind us they've still got a great talent for jazz! Titles include "Search For Soul", "Gotta Get It On", "Look Beyond That Hill", "Ain't Gon Change A Thing", and "A Message From The Inner City". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Thumb, 1978. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Hard to miss with The Crusaders at this point – and the album's one of their stone classics from the 70s – just the kind of soulful fusion that few other groups could touch! The core trio of Joe Sample's keyboards, Wilton Felder's saxes, and Stix Hooper's drums is augmented by the guitar of Billy Rogers and bass of Robert Popwell – both players who slide in warmly to the grooves, yet still help the combo keep that lean, funky sound they first forged after dropping the first word from their Jazz Crusaders name. Things are never slick at all, and the use of vocals and larger instrumentation is yet to come – leaving the album a tight, right, outta sight groover all the way through! Titles include "Fairy Tales", "Merry Go Round", "Cosmic Reign", "Snowflake", "Covert Action", and "Bayou Bottoms". LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersScratch ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A great Crusaders album – and one that's a perfect bridge between their earlier soul jazz styles, and their tighter funkier electric one. The record was recorded live at the Roxy, and the group is augmented by Larry Carlton on guitar, who gives the tracks a nice razor edge at his best moments. All songs are pretty long – and the band is in extremely good form, jamming away with lots of funky vamping, and breaking out with some very soulful solos. Titles include "Scratch", "Hard Times", "So Far Away", and "Way Back Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Thumb, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A landmark album from The Crusaders – and a set that really has them sweetening up their groove with lots of tasty R&B touches! The guitar's a bit more pronounced in the mix on this one – setting up some tightly funky rhythms that almost seem to free up the horns even more for solo work – resulting in a sound that brings together all the best bits of the LA scene into one impeccable album of smooth jazzy funk! Titles includes their classic "Stomp & Buck Dance", plus lots of other nice groovers like "Double Bubble", "Time Bomb", "The Well's Gone Dry", "Whispering Pines", "Lillies Of The Nile", "Greasy Spoon", and "Super Stuff".

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".

Fatback BandNYCNYUSA ... CD
Spring/Southbound (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A fantastic bit of funk from Fatback – and one of those records that still makes us scratch our heads, and say "Man, how can they make music this tight?" The sound is impeccable – bass and drums really right on the money, with a focus that's a huge influence on countless acts to come – and this wonderful way of still being loose and fluid, while being impeccably played – hardly the too-uptight sounds you might get from other stiffer funk acts of the second half of the 70s! There's a really organic, collaborative feel to the whole groove – which also comes across in the way the vocals are laid down – almost as if the whole group's stumbling onto the lyrics at once through their musical inspiration – on killer cuts that include "Spank The Baby", "NYCNYUSA", "Cosmic Woman", "Double Dutch", and "Soul Finger".

Roy Gaines with Crusaders CrewGaineling ... CD
Red Lightnin/P-Vine (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $24.99
The great Roy Gaines in two different modes "funkin it uptown" on side one of the record – and "bringing it all back home" on side two! Both halves of the record are filled with great guitar work from Gaines – a deep Texas twang, but given a more contemporary electric sparkle – especially on the first side, which almost has Roy hitting some of Johnny Guitar Watson's charm in the way he lays out the vocals, and trips out on his guitar! Side two might be more "back home", but still has plenty of 70s blues modes in the mix – that infusion of soul that the Texas scene got once its bigger stars took off. Roy does this amazing job of scatting along with his guitar on "Houston Texas" – a tune adapted from a King Pleasure song – and other titles include "It's Too Late Brother", "It Came On Time", "First Rule Of Cheating", "Lowdown & Funky", "Short Haired Woman", and "A Hell Of A Night Tonight".
